I broke my less than a year old, camera My Husband bought me a Kodak Easyshare Z712 is, and I LOVED IT!!!! It was an awesome camera. Took great action shots, I could do the Video option and while it was recording, I was able to zoom in and out clearly *my Sony Cybershot wouldn't do that, so I got rid of it* and I took this camera everywhere with me.
One day, I brought it to the barn to get pictures of my buddies and I riding and of Nelson, and my stupid ass left it hanging on my stall door *In its' carrying case of course*
I hung it up, and proceeded to untack Nelson and groom him and do our Carrot stretches, and by the time I put him away and my tack, I had forgotten all about my beloved camera. So I went home, and that was when I realized it was not with me. Too late to go back to the barn, I had to leave it there.
So the next day, I get back to the barn and saw it hanging there, and I was excited that it never got stollen - but when I took it out of its' case, my heart broke
The LCD Screen was cracked like a car windshield. What the hell!! I soon realized, it was smashed by the tractor that the barn help drives through the isle way, pulling the manure spreader.
WAH!! I got home, hoping my Husband could jimmy with it to get the camera to work, because it wouldn't even turn on at that point - and after he took it apart, it turns out the chips inside the camera, that lay just behind the LCD screen, were smashed along with the screen. The camera was hit with so much force.....kaplow.
R.I.P my beloved Kodak Easyshare
*sigh* now I am looking for a new one. This sucks!
Sorry to hear it hun. Maybe with the holidays coming up, would it be an option to get a new one?
